Hyena: Episodes 7-8 Open Thread

Our leads might be the best at bickering like middle schoolers, but they also make a pretty unbeatable team in the courtroom, too. This week we get to see what happens when they find some harmony — and even better, we get some backstory and bonding.

 
EPISODES 7-8 WEECAP

While we saw a little more lawyering this week, Hyena stayed just as fun and playful, with a streak of courtroom boo-yah! At the end of last week’s episodes, it was clear that Hee-jae and Geum-ja were really going to have to bite the bullet and join forces if they wanted to win the D&T case. The stakes were high (really high, as the meeting in the “principal’s office” showed us) — not only for Song & Kim, but for each of their careers.

And for all their reluctance, when they finally combined their teams and brain power, they two were as awesome as I expected. The best part of their teamwork, though, is that they are mature enough to notice and leverage each of their strengths. That strategy showed during their “investigation” as they were preparing for the D&T case, but especially in the courtroom scene where it all came together.

While I enjoyed watching their lawyering and case-building and strategizing, the best part for me was the middle school bickering – and the rekindling of that understanding we (and Hee-jae) know they had. It’s the balance between their petty bickering and their obvious smarts/maturity as lawyers that makes this show so great. I love how we can get both angles from our characters at the same time.

Hee-jae, in particular, acts like he’s so irked by her presence and yet you can tell he’s totally enjoying every second — he mocks and copycats her words like a little kid, but when it comes down to it, he respects her smarts (and her). In fact, I don’t think they would have won they case without the mutual respect and common grrrrround that they actually both have.

Their teamwork culminates in a pretty great case scene, where Hee-jae gets things rolling, builds their case, and then passes it off to Geum-ja (with a wink) to finish things off with a clever stroke. The scene is really great, and I liked the way the case played out, and the smiles from the team — but the best part of this scene was definitely the ending.

When Geum-ja returns to the bench after delivering the final blow, Hee-jae puts out his hand under the table, and they share a secret high five of victory. It was just the right amount of playful, hopeful, and boo-yah. Squee!

Our team of victorious attorneys and their secretaries enjoy an expensive celebratory meal, and it comes out that it was Hee-jae’s secretary that told Ji-eun everything about his habits and tastes. Hee-jae feels wronged all over again (and who can blame him), but later that night winds up spending some time with Geum-ja when she needs it the most (or the least? I’m going with the most).

It looks like Geum-ja’s cop informant (recently fired) is her younger brother, and they share some soju and some bad news — their abusive father has been released early from prison. Flashbacks tell us all we need to know, and I’ve never seen Geum-ja look this shaken or afraid.

It was quite a switch when her brother leaves and Hee-jae takes his place at the table. We are treated to another beautiful and slightly drunken scene between the two, with awesome dialogue, amazing chemistry, and acting that just makes me watch with a huge smile on my face. As a drunken Ji-eun told Hee-jae early that night, “I’m rooting for you!”

The scheming attorney who I thought got put in his place last week is back to scheming, and he and his cohort are a tiny bit tiresome (I hope Hyena knows how to keep this plotline fresh as it progresses). That being said, there’s no shortage of other conflicts at the firm, and this week the other half of Song & Kim arrives in the shape of KIM MIN-JOO with a sneak attack and some definite knowledge of/interest in Geum-ja.

But of course it’s the backstory and the growth between our leads that is the most satisfying here. Every week I’m impressed how Hyena can make a totally exciting and watchable show while also giving it the depth and intimacy that I always crave out of a story. The earlier bar scene conversation between Hee-jae and Geum-ja, and the final scene of this week, were both so real and intimate that I felt like I needed to hold my breath while watching.

Geum-ja is beyond traumatized when her father shows up in her office, and all her terror from 23 years ago still rings as true as if it were yesterday. It’s nice to see a weak spot in Geum-ja’s armor at this point, since we’ve seen very little of her vulnerability thus far — and as expected/desired/necessary, Hee-jae also gets to see it.

He heads to her office late at night with a bottle of something strong, and two glasses. I loved his silent support to her here, listening to her deal with her ragged thoughts. It’s also the second time this week that he’s all but confessed to her, despite her constant stance of not liking him at all, and of drawing a hard line between them. But that’s not going to last for long. He’s pretty much exactly what Geum-ja needs in a partner. Especially in that last scene, when he asks that he can do for her and she answers, “Just be here.” If she’s not careful, he’s going to have her heart in no time (heck, he has mine!).

Things get a little intense when Hee-jae tells her to “do what she’s good at” and use him, and that he’ll let it slide that night. (Wow, Joo Ji-hoon killed this scene with those facial expressions of his!) Geum-ja didn’t seem to need much more encouragement than that, and they’re making out in seconds. The tension was real between them, and I get why Geum-ja is willing to use him here to burn off some stress, but actually, they deserve a better and more lasting encounter than this one. And I’m staking everything that they’ll get it.

Joo ji Hoon is playing his part so perfectly. I too was so impressed with the emotions he displayed with his facial expressions in that last scene. My heart was breaking for him. I am also watching Kingdom, so a bit of a switch-up to say the least. I wasn't going to watch this series, but I was securely hooked by the second episode. I also love the lavish sets and the amazing outfits that the leads both wear. I got a kick how Geum-Ja was sitting manspread style while talking to the CEO guy. Really, really, enjoying this drama.

Thank you for this quick and excellent weecap, @missvictrix! This is on the top of my viewing list these days.

Like I mentioned on another thread, I thought these two episodes slowed things down considerably from how it had started in eps 1-6 - lower energy levels, less tension/ leads becoming friends, slower pace, and also a little conventional and formulaic (the ep 8 makeout session, for example). But I'm still really enjoying it. Clearly, the fondness is not mutual - as yet - which leaves some scope for more tension (and some more formulaic jealousy to follow, as the teasers show). I'm still definitely rooting for them!

Attorney Kim's entry makes things more interesting, and suggests that Attorney Song has a dark side that we don't know enough about as yet.

I wonder if the show will end with Geum-ja and Hee-jae becoming managing (representative?) partners in their own law firm.

And the camerawork on the shoulder brush-past between Hee-Jae and Geum-ja's brother seemed like it was foretelling of a past encounter that might be revealed later? Or something ominous.

Ep 8 cliffhanger!! 😣😣😣 I wish the earth rotates faster, Friday comes faster so that I know what happens. It’s obvious that HJ still has lingering affection towards GJ. Aside from the lawyer cases, I am very much enjoying the two leads banter. Oh and also, Yu Mi! She’s amazingly ditzy its adorable.

Required fields are marked *

Haha. Yeah, Yu Mi is fun, although perhaps too ditzy sometimes. But I feel like I missed something in between - how does she fit in in the relationship chart? The primary connection I see is that she was Hee-jae's classmate in school (or some school connection). Everything else follows, as far as I could tell. Is that right?

reply

Required fields are marked *

Yes, you’re right. She’s Hee Jae’s classmates. Geum Ja approached Hee Jae through her, she lied to her, saying that she’s Hee Sun, who attended the same school as them, which was why Yu Mi kept calling her Hee Sun sunbae. Geum Ja (disguised as Hee Sun) met Hee Jae at one of their school reunion, when Hee Jae openly and charismatically asked her out (after growing attachment on her from meeting her in that now taboo laundromat. Haha)

From the beginning, Yu Mi has been hanging around Hee Jae’s office and beg him to take on her case, and that is why she’s always there. Hope that clarifies.
In short, Geum Ja used her to get to Hee Jae.

I'm guessing Geum-ja's father did a favor for Representative Song. Maybe related to the "accident" with his comatose wife. In exchange, Song helped Geum-ja's father with his murder case.

Ah that's a new angle completely. And the Representative Kim has suspected this all along, and knows that Geum-ja is her father's daughter, which is why her eyes twinkled when she heard her name, and was so interested in her right off the bat.

Yes! I'm shipping Rep Kim and Geum-ja teaming up to bring down Song and Bad Dad.

@cloggie,
I've been thinking along the same lines: that someone currently at Song & Kim had been responsible for basically giving Dad a get-out-of-jail card when he killed Mom. Maybe Dad wasn't drunk, but just his usual angry self. I'm wondering if a prosecutor failed to verify Dad's inebriation, thus allowing him to go nearly scot-free. Or could the judge have screwed up? Representative Attorney Song has given me a sleazy vibe from the start. Maybe he was a prosecutor or judge back then, and only later started working as an attorney -- which is where the money is.

If it really were a defense attorney at S&K who got Dad off the hook, perhaps it was a pro-bono case since I doubt he could have afforded the firm's going rate.

I think something happened with all those Department H files (they were shown a little bit too deliberately not to be important) and that's what made S&K the firm they are now, with Attorney Song the only survivor of that department. Before that, they could well have been a small shop, run purely by Song's father-in-law, and the father or Attorney Kim, who's just turned up.

Isn't drunkenness as a defense for murder utterly sickening?

I didn't understand that - killing someone in a drunken state would still be culpable homicide but not amounting to murder. There would still be some liability for it. How did he get away with it scot-free? (or am I misinterpreting the story/SK law completely?)

I could understand that it wasn't murder but he would still be responsible for her death. What didn't make sense to me at all, was that someone would only get a short prison sentence for that, just because he was too drunk to remember beating her mother to death. Didn't he get only 6 months?

3

Korean law (and a few other countries) has something about "diminished capacity" as a mitigating factor. However, I think that the part to do with DUI whether drugs or booze was changed some time ago, but it seems that some writers are not up on current recent law changes. And of course there is always tons of corruption in k-dramas.

2

@windsun33 that's interesting, I didn't know that. Her father's case was of course 20+ years ago...

A side note that the Korean laws for rape vs drunken rape were not changed until 2012. http://mengnews.joins.com/view.aspx?aid=2961949

2

Thanks for the inputs, @windsun33 . If drunken rape was treated thus in law, then drunken homicide is also likely to have been treated similarly. Has this change (rape v drunken rape) been incorporated into statute, or is it reliant on precedent still?

The law changes are current, at least in Korea and Japan.

@cloggie,
"Isn't drunkenness as a defense for murder utterly sickening?"

Yer darn tootin'. If anything, the book should be thrown even harder at those who commit crimes while under the influence of mind-altering substances. Whatever happened to facing the consequences of one's actions? Reducing murder to manslaughter or some lesser charge because the raging assailant didn't intend to kill the deceased makes my blood boil, especially if such assault were habitual.

Song & Kim's sole reason for existence seems to be to amass power, influence -- and immense wealth -- by helping the high, mighty & rich to beat the rap for any and all of their nauseatingly heinous crimes. S&K does it with their H Team, keepers of the in-house blackmail database. I'm beginning to wonder if Geum-ja's intention all along has been to infiltrate S&K to blow the cover on their dirty deeds. Maybe that's why she stands in the street staring up at the building. I used to think that she wanted to own a profitable building, but that's maybe not the case after all. She wants to tear Song & Kim's playhouse down.

Let me rephrase that:

Reducing murder to manslaughter or some lesser charge because the raging assailant didn't intend to kill the deceased simply because he was hopped up off his nut makes my blood boil, especially if such assault were habitual. It looked as if Dad had a history of beating Mom and Geum-ja. Initially I thought that she had an elder brother who beat her when she was young -- the violent guy she had bailed out of jail who came after her in the alley.

Thanks for the recap!!!
I've been thinking about this show for the whole day! I can't even describe how much I love it. I'm rooting for geum-ja to own the building, to start over with Hee-jae as friends and partners.

I thought Lawyer Song was trying to run and enter politics, because of the focus on the chief prosecutor last week and the fact he is doing a favour for D and T chairman who finances political campaigns. Maybe he just wants control of Song and Park for himself, in any case it will be interesting to see the showdown with Hee-Jae.

I love the micro expressions on Hee-Jae's face, the scene at the bar, showing up with the wine to comfort her. Amazing acting from Ji-hoon and hye soo.

I wish the scene could have ended without the kiss because I think a hug or just staying by her side for the night would have been enough. On the other hand, I'm like how did they resist the urge kiss during their arguments before!

Yeah, I'm with you on Geum-ja and Hee-jae as partners of a new firm theory - eventually. Hee-jae's expressions are awesome, hilarious mostly, sometimes maybe out of place too.

I felt like it was a little unnecessary and predictable. She already told him to stay with her and then stopped him from leaving the room.

We have here two seasoned and skilled actors who portray the strength, maturity, inner fortitude, cunning and emotional tension that make for a successful and appealing translation of the writer’s work. I can imagine no other actress who could have undertaken this role. And Ji Hoon...love him!

Thanks for that tip about hyenas. It prompted me to take a gander at this article:
https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/whos-laughing-now-38529396/

Geum-ja could pass for a spotted hyena, except that she's way too petite. But maybe that's the fun of the show as it stands all the usual tropes on their heads. She's the badass alpha female, but I suspect that she adopted dominant behavior in order to survive.

You're welcome. I've been pondering the show's title, and the literal animal does make a lot of sense. Female hyenas rule the roost, and that's certainly how Geum-ja comes across. It's also interesting to note that most of the extant species have jaws strong enough to chomp their preys' bones to bits. Although derided as scavengers in the popular imagination, hyenas actually take down most of their own prey -- while lions in real life are the freeloaders who scavenge hyena kills.

The patrician Yoon Hee-jae looks like a silver-spoon lion, but in his own way is also an intelligent and resourceful hyena. In true hyena fashion, Geum-ja has called the shots with Hee-jae from the very beginning, just like her counterparts in the wild. And when she latches onto her prey as a lawyer, she doesn't let go.

I've been wracking my brains to recall the significance of the slang term "hyena" that was the title for the 2006 tvN drama about 4 thirtysomething guys who grew up together and are navigating adulthood by fits and starts, with all the attendant career and romantic fiascos. It was by turns hilarious, touching, and raunchy enough for a 19 rating and banishment to air at 3AM.

Thanks for the write up - I'm with everyone else on how much I love this show. For me it's the little things that they film - someone slowly crossing their legs in an almost predatory manner. But the part I really loved was how Hee-jae and Geum-ja meet in the hallway in the morning and we see their legs walking and then bam they are totally in sync with each other.
Really nice camera work!!!
And yes I think Lawyer Song is creepy, but now I'm really curious about the back story between him and Lawyer Kim. hmmm

This show makes me rewind a scene and rewatch it because the actors are so brilliant. I want to capture every little details.
The two scenes that stood out for me
1) The bar scene. I can’t imagine that scene more perfectly shot or acted. My heart went out to him.
2) The last scene at office : I loved Joo Ji-hoon acting in that last scene. He was hurting because she went through something like that. the first time she talks about her past he hears something like this. He was hurting so bad. And his eyes were in pain. in so much pain. Arghh.

I too thought that kiss was not necessary. The emotional weight of the last scene was more impactful than the kiss.

I am getting annoyed by this idiot Lawyer who keeps acting up. Doesn’t he have cases to work on? Other lawyers are pulling all-nighters.

This week episods were beyond amazing especially episode 8 on the more emotional take...I must say i liked that they used a very simple,oridinary must say past for Geum Ja even if at first i was all thinking of some twisted backstory with evil chaebols drama style...In the end,the ordinary is the most horrible and sad stuff like domestic violence and i must say i loved how she solved her way out of that horror even if it wasn't "fair"...If the justice would have stood by her side she never would do that but the justice was never on her side but on the abuser...Loved this approch and can't condemn her at all for the way she made her own justice...My heart went to Hee-jae in both scenes,at the pub when he poured his heart and longing for her and in her office trying to comfort her...Her so called father is so shameless and a pastor now,u kidding me or what...Curious if CEO Song was indeed the one behind his wife accident,if he caused it because of the Law Firm...And like the other lawyer curious why he put Hee-jae with Geum Ja(they really looked like the future Song & Kim)...On the shallow side,the kiss was FIRE,that building was on fire that night!!!!
Glad the ratings are up because this show is the BOMB!!!My favorite at the moment among all the running ones!!!

Chiming in that I think ep8 kiss was totally appropriate and in line with their characters!

A hug wouldn't have sufficed with Geum-ja. She's not a huggy person. She's more of a I-do-what-I-want, damn-the-consequences, destructive type of person. And we know she's also been holding back with regards to Hee-jae, as seen in her bar speech "get your family to find you a nice lady and live your perfect life as is right now", so it's not like the makeout scene came out of nowhere.

I thought it was interesting that the 'perfect life' speech came right after she'd found out that her father had been released from prison. His perfect life vs her messed-up life as the daughter of a murderer & child abuser. Regardless of what she might or might not feel for him, she sees that as an abyss between them.

So she'll sleep with him but won't have a serious relationship with him (but we know that's not going to work!) Isn't that what she said to Yu-mi as a 'defense' for her actions?

Uff that kiss - one of the best in dramaland. I always appreciate it when dramas show us physical intimacy for reasons other than "romantic love". E.g. in Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim season q, episode 1, we got that firecracker of a kiss between two people releasing their tension after a massive victory over a difficult case. Here, Geum-ja needs comfort & Hee-jae offers it.

In both cases, there's some chemistry already there, hence these charged moments at all. And it's a treat to watch.

Kim Hye Soo as Geum-Ja is amazing. She's not a tough cookie who soften for a man. Ep8 is done and I'm still pretty sure none of us would be surprised if she discarded him, tossed him to the curb like a dirty rag. And why not? Sure, he's the dreamiest lawyer I've seen on my screen in a while, but she's a bad ass in her own right and she doesn't need him in the least. (but please, Geum-Ja, don't dump him again!)

They work soooo good together! Sizzling hot! Me likes!

I think it's Nespresso? It's everywhere on dramaland these days... they have different models but what they're really selling are the different pods/coffee mixes that you can buy and slot into the coffee maker.

Yep, it's def Nepresso in Hyena but there's a Nescafe machine that's similar and also everywhere. Ah, coffee :)
